I had put dinner in the crock pot this morning, so this afternoon I had time to do some sewing. My hubby's sister makes these hooded bath towels as baby shower gifts. My daughter-in-law ask me to make one for her little one who will be one this month.
I called B and ask for directions and I thought I understood what she meant, but now I'm not sure. At any rate, I bought some less expensive towels the other day so I could practice before I cut into the big towels I bought for the gift. This is what I came up with today. I made another one with a print cuff on the hood, but I want to put some blue rick rack down the front edges like I did on this one.
I had planned to watch the football game tonight, but I got discouraged and gave up early. I wanted to watch a knock-down, drag-out, blow-out. It started out that way, but it didn't last very long.
I put an arm roast in the crock pot this morning with onions, pototoes, carrots, and a can of tomatoes. It was very good. I think the tomatoes made the differece. They added a richness to the broth that things cooked in the crock pot don't usually have. The meat was very tender, too, and hubby liked everything. So that's a winner! And easy, too.
I took some snow photos today, but I didn't go out because the wind had blown all the snow off the branches by the time I got up. They are on the old camera that I left downstairs, so I will have to print some later. We didn't get any more snow today, but the wind blew what we had around a lot. We have drifts that are several feet deep in lots of places. I will have a hard time getting to work by 11:00.
Bedtime already. I am especially thankful for a nice warm house tonight.
